Our fast-paced modern world creates health issues caused by environmental stressors and psychological factors that interact with individual vulnerabilities and cause bodily symptoms and diseases that affect client's work, relationships and their life in general.
PSYMED is an interdisciplinary platform of medical professionals that was established to remedy limitations of traditional disjointed approach to healthcare that views mind, body and spirit as separate. Our typical patient usually experience discomfort, hopping from one doctor to another, going through multiple examinations, but leaving the doctor's office without having a clear diagnosis or recommended treatment. Patients often feel dismissed, helpless, hopeless, left out and are trying all kinds of possible alternative approaches on their own.
PSYMED covers this gap in healthcare system by using a complex approach based on bio-psycho-social integration.
